For the Fourth of July, Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider are celebrating freedom from great movies. “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” and “Larry Crowne” are both lousy, and “Monte Carlo” is only so-so. Jeff saw the New York Times documentary “Page One” (Eric didn’t) and says it’s pretty good, if you like newspapers and journalism and stuff. “Transformers” provides a good excuse to talk about toys that should be made into movies; the guys update their box-office competition; and Eric reads more iTunes reviews in old-timey voice.
QOTW: In honor of next week’s “Horrible Bosses,” tell us about a horrible boss you’ve had.
